NurseBobbi's Home Page
Website of Bobbi Kempter Pasternak, MSN, RNC-E-NIC
Welcome to my website! I'm a registered nurse (Alexandria Hospital School of Nursing Class of 1976) who has been active in Labrador retriever rescue since 2000. My husband Dave and I volunteer for Lab Rescue of the LRCP, Inc, a volunteer-driven nonprofit organization that rescues, fosters, and adopts out Labrador Retrievers.
NurseBobbi is my online nickname. My friends Brian and Katy Johnson have called me NurseBobbi since the birth of their son, Turner, in 1991. My nursing specialty is neonatology (care of the newborn), and I took care of Turner during his newborn hospital stay. In 1994, I attended his brother Evan's delivery. I earned my master's degree in nursing from Michigan State University in 2008 and began teaching in a baccalaureate nursing program in August of that year. I retired from the NICU at the end of 2008 and continue to teach full-time.
I'm a native of the Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C., and still live here with my husband, Dave Pasternak, and our canine companion, Henry. Henry, adopted from Lab Rescue of the LRCP, Inc., is the greatest dog on the planet. Always with us in spirit are Sam, Bonnie, Lucy, Levi, and Toni. We were fortunate to share our lives with Levi for over 12 years; Toni for almost 12 years; and Sam, Bonnie, and Lucy for 9 to 10 years each. We also fostered Punky (aka Lucy Punk) for Lab Rescue for nearly 5 years.
